White Blushing Angelfish

Just picked up this White Blushing Angelfish from my lfs today, I spotted it and thought if i dont get it now i'll probably not see one again for a while.
Real Beauty don't you think?

Yeah, so I have heard, any tips on keeping it healthy?
It is also with 2 of which i believe to be silver angels (though im not 100%) and all 3 of them seem to get one fine, possibly because they are roughly the same size

none really, I lost two in a row and switched to hybrid blushing and only problem I have is stress, they are very very stressed out high strung fish.

use the aquarium salt, it works for mine. just a tid bit here and there and they will come to it and swim in the evaporation

If you use salt (and I would NEVER use it for anything but ich), at least premix it. There is nothing out there to prove that one color morph of the same species is more fragile than another.

Pretty fish! Good luck with it!

Actually the A or A/A gene is an albino, notorious for being weak throughout history in every species.

But there are things out there that prove weakness and colorations do mix.

Nearly every angel or discus society will have something on it.

To be honest I'm not really a fan of using salt full stop, especially since i have kribensis fry at the moment and I'm not risking it possibly affecting them somehow.
He/she seems fairly calm after being here a full day and seems to enjoy swimming with my two small silver angels =)
